Trousers!

Recommended Posts


Good Evening 

I’m in the process of getting into trials and have been sussing out what clobber I need and working out costs. Boots, thinking of Forma Boulders, I used to have Forma Raptor MX boots and liked their fit. Helmet, well I wasn’t going to go overboard initially, maybe a Wolf Sport or Spada cheapie to get going with. What I’m wondering about is trousers - I’m not bonkers about spending over £100 on a pair of skintight multi-coloured leggings really, not yet at least but that’s what comes up when I search ‘trials pants/trousers’. I’d like some knee protection as well which they don’t look like they have generally, my knees aren’t great and I would like to protect them.

I’d like to upgrade as I go but initially need everything so I’m trying to watch the pennies a bit. Just want something suitably protective and comfortable and preferably a little less ‘bright’.

Suggestions welcome please!

Anyone else just wear mx trousers? You can easily fit knee pads under there. For years I’ve worn roller skating knee pads underneath instead of moto specific pads or knee braces. Great flexibility and gives me more confidence.

Just saying… why would you think of buying a ‘cheap’ helmet, you’ve only got one life. And good trials specific boots make riding much easier.

For trials riding a cheap helmet works fine, it's not like you'll be headbutting a lorry at 70mph - the expensive ones only add airflow and take away a bit of weight, and anything bought now will be ECE compliant safety-wise anyway.  As for the boots, anything flexible that doesn't fold around the footpeg works well to start off with - the Lidl boots I had at first were great, just not up to the rigors of more than half a dozen trials, lol
